WAY OF THE SEVEN STARS


Response To That Final Question:

Ignorance is the Bane of Man.
At a distance removed,
Dimly remembered, and
Still not seen distinct,
But yet somehow felt;
What we do sense
Is not reality; is not the Real Thing.
This World is hologram.
Then; for lucid sleep;
For it's just a dream
Within another dream
And we are not awake.

Seven Stars' Song of Revelation

Ignorance is a jail where no escape
Is possible but through knowledge.
Don't fear nor spurn. Dare to learn:

Assent to and accept this world as it is
Before attempting ascent to any world
Aspired to or wished for. Life's glorious!

That That Is can be known but by few.
Not space, not time, not gravity exists;
But as Extension from Field of Thought.

Be subject to neither church nor crown.

Dread naught. Disdain none: Not One!
Absent That That Is, there's Nothing.

That That Is, IS. That That's Not, IS, too.
That That's Not makes That That Is: IS.
That That Is makes That That's Not BE.

By rowing to That That Is, I become "I."
Wind + Water = Wave. As THOUGHT is
The Heart and The Nave of The Wheel.

Worlds are created from Thought alone.
That which we will do is because of that
What we are. We'll become who we are.

Charity, courtesy, civility, compassion,
Are cardinal spokes making civilization;
Chivalry forms center, hub's circle core.

IS is! Be not the slave of some other's I.
This, Creed of our Seven Stars Society;
This, The Teaching of the Seven Stars:

No man can be happy if he should choose
To be exile from his own nature and soul.
ALL IS THOUGHT ILLUMINATING BEING

Contingency

If we are truly contingent upon anything, it is the belief in our own existence. How is it that we know we exist? Because we can doubt the fact of our existence. If there is a doubt, there must be a doubter capable of doubt. So good, so far. Here now is the subtle part. Let us say that we doubt our own existence. Let us go even further to say that we disbelieve in our existence. Is this a disbelief in us, or is it a disbelief in existence itself? Perhaps it is both: a disbelief in our own existence and in the possibility of any existence itself. Well, obviously, we believe we exist. But let's take the exercise a step further. Does belief in our own existence create a contingency? Well, maybe. Now what would that contingency be? Perhaps it is a dimension of potentiality; a dimension in which the possibility of existence can occur...something that is capable of containing us, as existing. Now that dimension could be called a multi-verse, a container of universes, each of which is capable of sustaining existence; or we could go even further, and call it consciousness.
